So my friend and I hung out the other day and mentioned that when he was high on marijuana, he had a homosexual thought while looking at his other friend. BTW my friend is straight.
I was interested in this notion, and wandered if the same thing has happened to one of my fellow HEthens…
So the question:
Have you ever had a homosexual thought when you were high?
@whotheneighbors, I dont know how old you or your friend are, but most people who are teens or maybe in their early 20’s, it is normal to question their sexuality. To me, such a thought is part of the path to better understanding yourself. The fact that it happened while your friend was high may be pure coincidence of timing… I would hesitate to say that marijuana was the direct REASON for having the thought, though some might argue that when youre high, you tend to think more outside-your-box, which could’ve prompted the thought.
Yeah I sometimes get high and wonder what it would be like to have sex with another man – although i don’t really have anyone specifically in mind when I think about it. Its just this nameless, faceless guy. The conclusion I came to was that even though I have never been attracted to another man ever in my life, I could wind up meeting somebody at any point in time, and if it feels right, I may as well go for it.
Honestly I have a gay best friend and he has hooked up with about 20 “straight” guys but only when they were high on some drug… First we meet the dude..he acts super straight everything is cool then all of a sudden he gets high and BAM! Its like drugs make men homosexual. After seeing it happen time and time again with my gay friend and so many different “straight” guys I began to think every guy is having gay thoughts when they are on drugs…honestly i hate thinking that way…and it makes me paranoid that when my bf gets high he’s thinking about hooking up with other men… I mean he has never done anything to make himself seem anything other than straight but from what I have witnessed….the thoughts are sometimes there unfortunately.

We were warned…
But seriously… I have had homosexual thoughts while or while not high occasionally. More a curious “what if” scenario that anything I would act on. It’s a normal part of being a human. I love women, and sex with women. I have had plenty of gay guys hit on me, which is flattering but weird. Your friend should just learn to know himself and know that those thoughts are normal, and if they are part of who he is, no shame in acting on them. We are sexual beings…
You can be physically attracted to males and be totally straight! If we can be physically attracted to a lion’s mane or a serpent or like a wolf, why not a male’s structure? Same shit you got going on, how are you going to be sexually confident if you think a male’s body is unattractive? (You’d have to have one megalithic ego) Aha, the folly of homophobia crumbles away.
Just don’t let anyone fuck you in the ass. that’s gay because it’s going overboard on the pleasure of being submissive. Not very manly stuff. You have some shit to get over if you genuinely like being reemed by another dude.
Most people have them, but most probably wouldn’t admit to it for fear of being judged.
I know there are a few people who are completely heterosexual out there, but if most of us are completely honest our sexuality is fluid to a certain degree.
If something happens, then something happens!
I hooked up with another dude once just to see what it was all about. Didn’t enjoy it but it doesn’t mean I’d completely rule the idea out from happening again.
But yeah, weed will bring a lot of different thoughts out haha.
There is something called the kinsey scale, which displays a scale from gay to straight and everything in between. Even a-sexual. Thankfully many people in western countries allow themselves to explore their sexuality, and sometimes even the society approves.
Drugs and alcohol free you of your inhibitions making it okay to think about it or even to experiment. In my opinion you should also be free to explore this while being sober, even if you don’t want to be open about it.
I know many guys and girls who are open about experimenting or being gay, bi or straight. People sometimes change their minds again later in life. And some are just gay when the’re drunk :P
I personally believe most people are not completely straight or gay. And besides the physical attraction there is an emotional and spiritual attraction, which is sometimes stronger with people from the same sex.
Aren’t we all spiritual beings in a body?
Bob marley said something like the weed reveals you to yourself………. ahahahaha…
also Ricky from glengarry glen ross said ‘we’re all queer’ and that is true. Our society assumes the sexuality and gender of children which is gross if you ask me but whatever. It’s perfectly okay to be gay as fuck or straight as hell but smoking weed does turn people on and makes them more open minded so if someone was curious about such things I think weed would be a great motivator to bring it up lol.. Honestly I just wanted to say this made me laugh a lot but I think it’s a fair question. I have had homosexual thoughts on and off of marijuana, I have had heterosexual thoughts high and straight lol. I do smoke quite regularly and I enjoy having sex high but the thoughts are my own. No weed is going to make you think something you don’t feel. Sexuality is a spectrum and orientation is an attempt to put words on feelings. In some cases this can be empowering but it can also be limiting. I consider myself mostly straight even though I have been with near as many girls as guys cause that’s just how I feel. I have had great experiences with women even though I am much more attracted to the masculine. That’s why I prefer to just go with the flow and not worry too much about definitions when I am choosing a partner or thinking about sex while high on marijuana because a person is a great amalgamation of many things… sometimes that maybe a stoned gay thought but it’s just one small fragment of the larger whole. We can think and do things without them defining us and I just want to add that there is nothing wrong with these kinds of thoughts.
Short answer: yes. and straight ones too :p
Yes i have it’s weird because I am and was asking the same question. Im straight and have experience those thoughts while high. At first i didn’t want to believe it but i came to the acceptance part about it. I realize that those thoughts were only in mind while intoxicated. So thinking that way makes things easier then simply think im not straight because i am. Amphetamines also induce those thoughts to in my opinion unless there’s something i dont know about me.haha jp
Who’s “they”? Weed is not unnatural, it’s being used many places to help people with pain or other ailments. It’s close to being legalized. So who is the they that said marijuana is unnatural. And if you think homosexuality is unnatural, you need to open your mind.
<p style=”color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: -apple-system-font; font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px;”>The kinda weed they have out now, especially where I’m from (Southern CA) is not the same stuff Bob (Marley) was smoking on. I can tell you that much. Do you know how corporations like Monsanto gets their greedy, evil little hands on our fruits and veggies? I personally believe marijuana is being targeted in the same regards. After all, like you said, it is being legalized and is heavily perpetuated by the media. I encourage you to look into this.<p style=”color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: -apple-system-font; font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px;”>Nature, in its purest form holds many truths, wether we like them or not. It is we who pervert it (e.g. peace to war/ discord, abundance of resources to greed, pristine beauty to pollution, etc.) Who are you to say there are no deeper aspects/ variables to understanding homosexuality (i.e. chemical imbalances, genetic factors, psychological implications, etc?) Sure, we are all conditioned by society to accept “Caitlyn” (Bruce) Jenner and his removal of his male genitals as normal, but does it make him a REAL woman? No. Is it NATURAL? No. Me and you are here because a man and a woman procreated and produced us. Not a man and man or a woman and woman. See what I mean? Doesn’t mean I’m a bible thumpin’ homophobe or believe gays/ lesbians are any less deserving of love then me or you. I am implying say that it is not in alignment with nature. Perhaps it is you who could benefit from an open mind, as well.
I agree with you about what might be done to the weed where and when it will be legalized. I read in some unrelated article about people growing their own weed. I doubt I’m the only one but when I heard about Bruce Jenner, I didn’t even waste my time thinking of it. I don’t like reality shows or people who are famous just because of their name and money (but that’s not the topic.) Even though I’m atheist, if you want to bring up the bible, if you believe what’s written, we may have come from a woman and man but in the beginning, that woman and man were brother and sister. Incest is all over the bible and that’s not natural. If a person is gay, it doesn’t mean they have a chemical imbalance or there is something wrong with their brain and way of thinking. People can’t help what they like….all that should matter is love.
And to reply to the real topic here, just like someone else said, nothing can make you feel or do something unless you already wanted to, subconsciously or not. And if someone feels that way after smoking weed or any other drug, there shouldn’t be anything wrong with it. They shouldn’t be made to feel like there’s something wrong with them.
You’re right, at the end of the day regardless of what me or you think on the subject people are gonna like what they wanna like and do what they wanna do. I only brought up the bible in reference to a typical stereotype. I for one am not a huge fan of the King James bible :)
